for the president, a new college poll shows mitt romney behind just four points. what jumps out at you there, mike? >> well, two things. we see mitt romney continuing to close the gap. but we see the president ahead again and again. they're in the margin of error. the president is always ahead. but very little room to grow. republicans are saying that they don't believe these polls. willie, you're not old enough, but some people will remember the old accuracy and media bumper sticker, i don't believe the post, and i think republicans should get one that says i don't believe the poll. because they spend a lot of their time on conference calls talking to reporters, telling them that these polls don't reflect the reality that they're seeing. for instance, in ohio, neil newhouse, the romney pollster, will say if we win independents, we win. so shethese polls are just clos enough that either side could be right. >> mark halperin, when you look at these polls, the president again has leads in all of these swing states. margin of error leads in some places. what do you see here? >> i'm going to take a ri
that last week their polls showed mitt romney up four to five points in ohio. by monday, mitt romney was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. so they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. so you might say that it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data and that's why they're arguing these cases that they are. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? i mean, are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> well, one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollster, neil newhouse, was saying that he doesn't buy some of these national polls because he was just pointing out that the quinnipiac/"new york times" poll and said that was weighted more heavily toward registered voters than likely v

bit, well, either obama or romney would be farther ahead. but this report comes four days before election day. the entire campaign, really both campaigns, are premised on the notion of either the economy is growing or it's not growing. either jobs are coming back or it's not coming back. the assumption among most economists who are looking at this is that the establishment survey, the survey of the employers, will show about 125,000 new jobs created in october. and th and that the unemployment rate will stay close to what it was, about 7. %. the real issue is the direction of the unemployment report. if it looks like things continue to get a little bit better, that improves obama's chances. that improves the president's chances. if it looks like things are getting worse, however, that really does lend some credence to former governor romney's view that things are not what they should be. >> professor, what about sandy? any disruption it could add to the accuracy of the reading, the jobs report itself? >> the surveys were done before sandy. i don't expect sandy is going to have mu

think, will take more votes from mitt romney than barack obama but i do not think it will make a difference in any state unless we have three, four, five states that are squeakers and then you get in a situation like 2000 with ralph nader. as far as gary johnson's real impact, let's put it in context. since libertarians have run for president in the modern era, they have only one more than 1% a single time, i think it is 1980 when mr. clark was running against reagan and jimmy carter. otherwise they get about a half a percent or less of the national vote. even ron paul got half a percent, a belief, when he ran in 1988. so we are not talking about a whole lot of votes. so, they could be critical votes in certain states that are very close. we have an independent in virginia, former congressman virgil goode who once represented the area i am in right now, fifth district of virginia. he was a very popular congressman. he lost a reelection in 2008 in the obama wave by just a tiny number of votes, about 700. it was the closest congressional race in the entire country in 2008. he's g
